Interviews with family, colleagues, and performers who appeared, began, or were influenced by "The Tonight Show" illuminate his story: David Letterman, Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, Joan Rivers, Mel Brooks, Angie Dickinson, David Steinberg, Don Rickles, Carl Reiner, Doc Severinsen, and others. Kevin Spacey narrates.
